Track Name: Barely A Moon
Barely a moon has passed since I made my confession
Slowly it’s all disintegrating before my eyes
Maybe I’m caught within an endless fiction
The waters rise to meet me here tonight

I would love to ride off to the distant skyline
And leave all of the damage in my wake

Barely a moon I’ve slept without the old anchor in my heart
Barely a moon since I have seen myself in every broken shard
Barely a moon I lost you in the rain of a thousand lonely sorrows
Barely a moon until I am back within the clutches of tomorrow
I’ll sing over and over again…

Barely a moon has passed and all the wasted angels
infected in the body and the mind
They're walking through the streets amongst the children
and all those who will be wasted in time

I came down here to rescue you before me
I came down here to bring you up again

Barely a moon I’ve slept without the old anchor in my heart
Barely a moon since I have seen myself in every broken shard
Barely a moon I lost you in the rain of a thousand lonely sorrows
Barely a moon until I am back within the clutches of tomorrow
I’ll sing over and over again…
Track Name: Last Ride
Tangled up in nets and washed up on the shore
I sank into the depths to sleep forever more
But the books have taken hold
They told me what I need to do
when inside I’m black and blue

It’s a shame that I may never trust you
Shame that I may never trust you
Shame that I may never trust you
Through the wastelands I will ride
A burning hand that sweeps across the sky

If you don’t want to leave tomorrow
Then I don’t want to leave today
If history is history - there’s nothing left for you and me
One of us must stay

It’s a shame that I may never trust you
Shame that I may never trust you
Shame that I may never trust you
The truth is like a silent frost
I’ll sacrifice myself to pay the cost...
Track Name: Kimberly
The coming storm
Our history unadorned
The pages we have torn

It's been far too long
You drift in like a song unheard
but somehow I've known you all along...

You'll never reveal
a wound that's never healed
but you still take the wheel

So here's the ride
I want to feel alive
but I can't leave tonight...

Farewell my friend
You've given up the fight I hoped to see you win
Farewell my friend
I was merely lost in thought
but somehow you're falling from me now...
Track Name: Into Sun
You are always on the run
Falling back again
Firing on
You're exploding into sun
Breaking through the clouds
Summer's dawn
I am on the cliff next to you
I've come back to see this through
I am reaching into the blue
From my arms the flowers grew...

You are teacher, teach me wise
I will use these winds to lift me high
The music's in my ears tonight
It takes me straight up to the eye
I know I need to come back down
Put both feet on the frozen ground
Set the time and remove my crown
until the next time I'm lost within the sound...
Track Name: Candle For The Blind
A quick reminder, an arrow through the heart
Are we bound for life?
The worst is yet to come, we’re stuck in orbit
There’s nothing we can do
Nothing we can do…

We’re uncompromising, falling leaves
A candle for the blind
Do you believe in me?
The swirling lights are nauseating
Nauseating
Nauseating
Nauseating
Track Name: Translucent
I never thought I would ever be
another link in the chain
I never thought I would ever be here
Ten days in the rain

I would love to take a hand
and escape from the bell
Am I lost in a foreign land
Or just going through hell?

Voices speak in another tongue
Unfamiliar to me
Follow me where the river runs
That’s where he will be

All faith misguided now
Darkness all around
The body’s in a shroud
Lifeless on the ground

Find me…Find me when you’re done
You’re the…you’re the only one
Keep me… Keep me in your heart
As it… As it falls apart
Track Name: Fall Town
I'm waiting for a real connection to the world which I am bound
One moment in a brief reflection is enough to bring me down
I die for the sweet affection that is nowhere to be found
I'm coming down with contagious infection and my body's burning now
in Fall Town...

What can I do in a room without a view?
I'm never lost and never gone
This must be the place where I truly belong...

I tremble under the seduction of a promise kept safe and sound
We are victims of an endless corruption that keeps spinning round and round in Fall Town...

Where do we go upon the land where nothing grows?
Forever more, For Avalon
We must be back where we truly belong....
in Fall Town
in Fall Town
in Fall Town
in Fall Town
Fall Town...
Track Name: The Parting Waters
If we had to go further than what’s way beyond us
Would we go?
If we were to take the weight of life upon our shoulders
Would we break?
If I were to say the many things that were said to me
Would you cry?
If I were to keep the oceans from just spilling over
Would you stay?

A signal out at sea
I’ll walk on through the parting waters
You’re slowly killing me
So I’ll walk on through the parting waters

I won’t hold you back
I won’t be the last
Just think of me when all of this has passed…
I won’t hold you back
I won’t be the last
Just think of me when all of this has passed…
